Ozzy Osbourne was spotted leaving a physical therapy session in Los Angeles on December 29.
The 74-year-old Black Sabbath singer appeared frail as he walked with a cane to his car. In June, the singer, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2019, underwent “life-changing” surgery.
The Prince of Darkness hitmaker stepped outside wearing a long, navy pea coat. The Grammy winner was dressed casually in a black top and matching track pants. He walked in black sneakers with his shoulder-length hair slicked back.
His wife Sharon Osbourne, 70, stated on the UK’s The Talk on TalkTV in the summer that the major operation would “determine the remainder of his life.”
Previously, following a quad-bike accident in 2003, the songwriter suffered a severe fall that dislodged metal rods implanted in his spine. In May, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee spoke with Classic Rock about the operation.
He stated that he is still unable to walk properly and is awaiting additional neck surgery. He added that he had to go to physical therapy every morning, and while he is improving, he has not fully recovered enough to return to the road. In January 2020, Ozzy revealed that he had been diagnosed with Parkin 2, a type of Parkinson’s disease, in 2019.
During an interview with Good Morning America, accompanied by his wife, he stated that he could no longer hide the pain and that he had to begin taking a “vast array” of medications to treat the symptoms.
He revealed that he had kept his condition hidden for a year before deciding to reveal it. He revealed that everything started when he fell in his Los Angeles home in January 2019, shortly after being admitted to the hospital for pneumonia.
Metal rods that were implanted in his spine following an accident in 2003 that broke eight ribs, his collarbone and a vertebra in his neck were dislodged by the fall. Furthermore, his heart stopped twice on the way to the hospital. The fall at home, according to Ozzy, was less severe but still traumatic. He performed at the SoFi Stadium halftime show for the season opener between the Los Angeles Rams and the Buffalo Bills in September. Patient Number 9, his thirteenth solo studio album, was released the following day.
